Drone worth £45m CRASHES in Kandahar

According the US Air Force an MQ-9 Reaper aircraft crashed at a base in southern Afghanistan yesterday.

The incident is not suspected to be of a hostile nature and no casualties have been reported.

In a statement, Captain Bryan L Bouchard said the MQ-9 Reaper went down at Kandahar Airfield.

He said the cause of the crash is under investigation but he added that “hostile fire was not a factor”.

Kandahar Airfield, which is the largest base in Afghanistan, is being renovated by the US-NATO mission for mixed military and civilian use.
